When The Amazing Spider-Man 2 video game launches at the end of this month, its interactive web-swinging will come with a side order of The Kingpin. A man built like a brick house, whose real name happens to be Wilson Fisk, the crime lord figures to be a major pain in the human spider’s spandex-clad buttocks given what’s presented in the game’s latest story trailer.
Set for release on April 29 — which is mere days before the theatrical film it’s named after is scheduled to hit theatres — The Amazing Spider-Man 2 places its protagonist in the midst of a very precarious situation. Therein, Spidey will find himself attacked on all sides by a group of his greatest enemies, and will need to figure out who’s behind everything. We may already know, though, because the Kingpin is a likely suspect.
If you’re like me, then you probably have April 29th circled on your mental calendar, or perhaps even a physical one. In all honesty, I find myself much more excited about the release of The Amazing Spider-Man 2‘s video game than the film itself. After all, it’s hard to think of many video game protagonists who are more fun to control than the human arachnid.
